In recent decades, the challenges for agriculture have multiplied and intensified. New issues of environmental protection, biodiversity, soil and species conservation, water quality, food safety, animal welfare, bioenergy, demographic pressure, globalization and competitiveness, new advances in science and technology affect the structure of the agricultural sector.

Being aware that the configuration of tomorrow’s agricultural systems depends upon the ability to address these issues, the University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest has decided to publish the biannual AgroLife Scientific Journal, in order to stimulate the discourse of the agricultural scientific community and inspire the latter to actively participate in the creation of global knowledge.

AgroLife Scientific Journal will focus on integrative approaches, contributing to the gradual passage of agricultural research from a disciplinary to a more complex approach connected to life and social sciences. AgroLife Scientific Journal is a peer-reviewed, open access journal it aim to publishes original research papers, high-quality reviews and short communications from all the subfields of agronomy sciences, with special attention to multi and interdisciplinary approaches. The material should not have been previously published elsewhere.

We hope that you will find this journey challenging through the topics we propose and we invite you all to join the reflection for our future issues.
